Presentation Description

How should we tailor research workshops to best meet the needs of graduate students and other specialized user populations who are beyond general information literacy sessions? This presentation will focus on an assessment project at George Mason University focusing on the instruction and research needs of graduate students in the Social Sciences, with an emphasis on those in Public Policy, Peace and Conflict Studies, and Political Science. The presentation includes an analysis of the steps taken in designing and implementing the assessment, in addition to the survey findings. Changes to our instruction program and outreach methods resulting from the survey outcomes will be discussed, and best practices will be shared.
